you stroked…

river…

riverLike crickets calling in chorus, the leaves burnish the afternoon with their whispered rustling. Eddies of air twirl our hair, riffle the river, caress the stones crumpled on the shore. Green tendrils wave beneath the water, push emphatically through the sandy turf, bend to the lure of the sea. Purple weed, mauve rock, persimmon colored flower marooned at the water’s edge.

Gravity, ever serious at its work, presses on each of us here, holding us steady on the slope, weighting us down as if we too could be impressed upon the riverbank, anchored in the soil. But we are only sandbars, forming and reforming, drowning and basking in the cycle of days.
